Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH v10 4/7] Update IRTE according to guest interrupt config changes

> For lowest-priority interrupts, we use vector-hashing mechamisn to find
> the destination vCPU. This follows the hardware behavior, since modern
> Intel CPUs use vector hashing to handle the lowest-priority interrupt.
> For multicast/broadcast vCPU, we cannot handle it via interrupt posting,
> still use interrupt remapping.
